Although what’s in my handbag posts and videos have been around for many years, I’ve never wrote one of my own. I love flipping through these kinds of blogger posts. I am probably the last person on earth to do this handbag post. My life is glamourous only for five percent and rest of the time it is a total mess. I swear! These days, I try to keep my handbags neat and I often clean those receipts and biscuit crumbs, only my headphones are always a tangled mess. No matter how many bags I own, I always keep essentials in them to help me pass through the day! They say you can tell a lot about a woman by looking at her handbag. A woman’s handbag is a window into her personality. Ever since I got #MyAsusZenFone, I wanted to show you some of the essentials I carry in my bag. And there you have it ….. I am spilling the secret contents of my bag today!
First up, let’s talk about the handbag itself – I actually got this Royal Blue Bus Conductor Sling Bag from PrincessK, it’s sturdy and made of good quality fabric. It has only one main compartment and two small compartments. I think the bag may be sold out now, but you can keep a watch on their site in case you get lucky. I absolutely love this bag. The size of the bag is just perfect.
I am super happy to show you my new Asus Zen Fone 5. I feel excited to get the contents out of my bag and show it off to the world. I’m not even ashamed truly.
Asus ZenFone 5:
I saved the best part for first. Yeah! It’s my all new Asus Zen Fone 5, my priceless possession. I like taking #MyAsusZenFone on meetings sometimes to show clients my work & not to mention it’s a lot easier to carry around than a laptop. I can also easily access my files using google drive. A bunch of other useful apps make my life easier! I’m never without my smartphone and this beautiful gorilla glass screen makes it even more appealing. Up until recently I was only using my cell phone to tweet friends and Instagram my favourite snaps, but I’ve recently stumbled upon a new addiction that’s got me unable to put my phone down – a popular game called Candy Crush Saga. I wasn’t really into gaming before, but a friend of mine recommended this game and it turns out, there are a whole host of cute games out there! I shoot with a Nikon P600 but Asus Zenfone 5 is great for capturing pics. It is lightweight and easy-to-use when I’m not shooting with my real camera.
ZenFone5 has combined the best of the smartphone experience with powerful performance that will improve every aspect of your life. Simple, Peaceful, Beautiful, this is what ZenFone 5 designed to be. ZenFone 5 features two SIM card slots in one device allowing you to use a single mobile for personal as well as work needs. It also has been tuned to reduce power consumption resulting in a noticeable increase in standby time and battery life. The Zenfone accessories are beautiful. There are lot of colourful cases available to match your outfit. ASUS TruVivid laminated display is simply amazing. There is glove touch and finger print fighting due to smooth glide coating. It is the best budget friendly smartphone in the present market. You can purchase it for Just 9,999 INR from Flipkart.
Lipstick: A girl can never have too many lipsticks in her life right? I always like to carry around a basic lip color like this Maybelline in pink or coral. I recently got this lipstick by Natures Brilliance by Sue with a frost finish for photographs with #MyAsusZenFone and I’m in love with both these colors because it makes my lips so soft and prettier. I also carry around a chap stick or lip balm.
Stationery: I always carry around my mini mate diary. It hasn’t left my side since I bought this from Buyincoins. Along with my diary is a cute pen. I’m a stationery addict so there’s nothing too surprising that I carry these. I also have a big size Marilyn Monroe Dairy with me. I like to write things down because I’m so forgetful! I like making lists of things that I have to do for the day, or writing down my blog or work schedule so I know what to prepare for. How cute is this mini notebook? It’s great for just making small notes and little reminders! I don’t need this anymore because I keep digital notes in my Asus Zenfone 5.
Accessories: One accessory I can’t live without are sunnies! Sunnies- The bigger the better for me! And a golden watch is so perfect for any outfit, it’s always great to bring along a versatile watch in case your outfit needs a little boost. I also carry a statement necklace and a pair of earrings with me at times.
Wallet & Cards: Wallet. I usually carry a wider purse, so I love this sleek compact wallet gifted by Dove that I’ve had for a couple of months now. The neon pink and green shade just makes me smile. I also have that rose girl printed card holder to store my debit, credit, other cards like pan and railway tickets. Another must have.
Compact Mirror: This cookie shaped combination mirror and brush comes in handy all the time. I keep one in each of my purses at all times. I also carry a separate tangle teezer brush.
Makeup Pouch: Bringing a small pouch around with my makeup is an absolute must. Sometimes I need to retouch my makeup when I am out for too long. I like to pack a few of the main ones to bring with me everywhere — my Oriflame compact powder, Avon eyeshadow, EcoTools kabuki brush, Zoeva powder brush, Nivea Moisturizer, Etude hand cream, Clinique Mascara, 3CE Kohl,ItsSkin Blusher mainly. And I love to carry little Chloe perfume bottle. I always need my floral Linziclip which is a perfect friend to tame my frizzy hair.
Medicine Tin: I take some paracetamol, aspirin and other handy tablets along with tiger balm in that tiny metal tin. It is helpful when I fall sick or when an emergency comes. I also have a few pads and bandages inside that cute striped pouch. I also carry a pair of scissors all the time. I also have a Lens Case.
Candy: I carry a few lollipops to munch on.
Novel/Fictional Books: I love reading and I always carry story books.
Tissues & Towel: My face is an oil factory and I just can’t skip these two.
Please note: I can’t find my headphones? I do not know where the hell they have disappeared. I usually listen to music (Taylor Swift, Enrique, Rihanna and Justin Bieber) on the train from Coimbatore to Palakkad. I also keep a bottle of water, healthy snacks, Hand Sanitizer, Face-Wash, SPF and keys in my bag.
That’s pretty much about all there is in my bag, a cool roundup of some of my most-loved possessions. What essentials do you carry in your bag?
